A word from Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab
Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Opened in Chicago in the fall of 2000, Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's has quickly built a reputation as one of Chicago's top steakhouses, featuring the signature 16 oz. Bone-In Filet Mignon and 22 oz. New York Strip Steak. Matched with Joe's famous side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of key lime pie. Enjoy a generous cocktail in the bustling lounge or the tuxedo-clad service of the clubby dining room and you'll understand why dinner at Joe's has quickly become one of Chicago's favorite social engagements.

  • "Server didn't recognize birthday although I told him, the front desk at the door and said it on my reservation. He brought us dessert menu and made some suggestions; I told him we didn't need it."

  • "My fiancée and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Joe's. Our server was top notch. She was personable, and helpful, without being overly pushy. The food was terrific. Between seafood and steak orders, neither of us went wrong. Our server's recommendations for sides and portion sizes were right on the mark. We were quite surprised at the crowd at 9:00 P.M. on a Sunday, when neighboring restaurants were almost empty. The entire staff we interacted with were very friendly and professional, and seemed genuine in providing that service. The tab makes this a place more suited for special occasions, but it is a gem of a restaurant and reminds you how the great ones "get it"."

  • "Joe's Stone Crab is really one of the best restaurants in the country. This one in Chicago is no exception. We were seated promptly and the server was there right away to greet us and take our drink order. We had Stone Crab, and it was great. The entire staff is very friendly and will take a few moments to talk with you. We felt so welcome."

  • "We had a wonderful dining experience at Joe's. Had the wild king salmon on the specials menu and it was cooked to perfection. The herb roasted chicken was perfect for my daughter who has dietary restrictions. Our waiter was fantastic and very helpful regarding the menu options. Service was prompt and very professional. I would highly recommend Joe's for families or couples dining out in Chicago."

  • "Excellent service and food. No rush style but you need to book well in advance to get a reasonable seating time. We ate at 9:00 p.m., which was perfect for our late evening plan. Good selection of wine. We went for the 2011 Felsina Beradenga Chianti Classsico which was very palatable for a lower priced offering. Lamb chops were tender and well portioned though the mint dressing may have been light on mint.. Good location and very popular.. a good sign. Will we return?...you bet."

  • "I decided to go back to Joe's to celebrate my birthday. After a spectacular dining experience, we will be back soon. We were greeted warmly by the host and shown to a prime corner booth. The waiter was friendly and professional. We enjoyed our drinks and began with salads that came as ordered and that were plated tableside. The steaks were great, as expected but the Dover Dole, filleted tableside was the star of the show (as promised). A brownie sundae for dessert and a glass of whit wine topped off a perfect dinner."

  • "Outstanding, as always! Food just doesn't get any better than this. Scallops, halibut, filet mignonette & stuffed shrimp - all exceptional!"

  • "Our family went to Joe's Seafood to celebrate our sons: elder off to junior year at UofI Business, junior to first year of high school at Marist. Everyone enjoyed their meals, from excellent bread basket (for young men, it makes a difference, believe me), to sharing some of our entrees of exceptional crab legs and great filet mignon. The mac and cheese was exceptional, spinach not so much. Grilled halibut and crab stuffed shrimp excellent, and the chocolate fudge pie, too."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "We have been going to Joe's for several years now. Every visit the food has been fantastic and the service excellent! We have gone in on the spur of the moment and ate at the bar and we have dined in the dining room when we want to have a nice dinner together as a couple. We highly recommend it!"

  • "Food was great, service was impeccable.loved the crabcake appitizer and the bone-in rib eye was one of these steaks I ever had. Loved the ambience with the waiters in tuxedos and white gloves. The King Crab legs being served to us cracked and opened at our table is a nice touch. Pricey but nice for special occasions."

  • "This restaurant is one of Chicago's Best Places. I highly recommend is for everyone. My Mother and Grandmother REALLY!!! enjoyed the food, wine and hostess. The lunch was AWESOME!!! I didn't get a chance to have dinner. But i will make reservation in a couple of weeks for that."

  • "Erin (server) and Dan (barkeep) were terrific! Prices were high for the quality of food received. Noisy and so crowded in the dining room that you couldn't move your chair without bumping into someone else. Not for a quiet evening or much conversation."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Our server, Matt, was wonderful and all wait staff did their jobs perfectly. We never had a dirty dish around yet never were asked "if we were finished" and never felt hovered on to clear our dishes...beverages refilled without a wait...just great in every way. They were all very skilled and warm. Loved our experience."

  • "I cannot express how great our experience was at Joe's! Our waitress was friendly, and she made great food recommendations. We were even given a complimentary dessert because it was our first visit! We couldn't believe how great everything turned out - the experience and the food. We would definitely return to Joe's, and I recommend that everyone visit once; you'll definitely want to return."

  • "If I could give Joe's more than 5 stars, I would. There is no restaurant I have dined at that provides the consistent top notch quality of food, and reliably exceptional service I get at Joe's. There are trendier places, but they all wish they could deliver Joe's quality with the kind of class you get at Joe's. The wait staff is very knowledgeable about the food and they always make me feel like my table is the most important table in the room. Bravo Joe!"

  • "Joe's is the place to eat in Chicago. Amazing Steaks and Seafood. I have been coming here for years and don't plan on stopping. The level of service is amazing. I put pressure on them by booking reservations not too far in advance, but they always do their best to accomodate me (Thank you Abby)"

  • "This is the second time we have eaten at Joes. The food is fantastic!! The service is out of this world, our server came up with great recommondations and suggestions to where he built our meals. We had the lobster & snow crab which was excellent, the couple with us had steaks that where cooked to profection. Make sure you try to book your reservations a week in advance if you are trying to go on Saturday because the are so busy. I will go back to Joes next time Im in Chicago!!!"

  • "I've eaten at Joe's a number of times in the past, but this time I was not satisfied as before. The Grilled Halibut was so small, I was finished in just a few bites. The Coconut Cream Pie had too much STIFF whipped cream on the top, and the crust was half-baked. Joe's used to be one of my all-time favorite spots to eat, but in my mind, it has fallen a few notches. I must add that the service was superb. Our Server, Dan, was Top-Notch!"
